When he wasn’t on his adding machine, Ken enjoyed vacationing in Florida and cruising, walking his dog Fred and indulging in sweets. He was a loving husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle and friend who will be dearly missed by all who knew him. He is survived by his beloved wife of 47 years, Constance (Anzalone) Craig, and his two children: Candace Bulishak and her husband, Gregory of Islamorada, FL, and Kenneth J. Craig Jr. and his wife, Kathryn of Millis; his five grandchildren: Roman Bulishak, Sloane Bulishak, Elliot Craig, Harlow Bulishak and Lydia Craig; his twin brother, Edgar Craig Jr. of Peabody and brother, John Craig of FL and several nieces, nephews and cousins.
